By The Numbers: Week 3, 2019

Well, I went ahead and spaced out on the fact that it was Thursday all day yesterday, until I started seeing football stuff popping up on social media. I managed to never miss a Thursday night pick last year, but only three weeks in I missed. Honestly it’s been kind of nice just relaxing when I have time off instead of having to crank out blog posts. It’s also nice to be in a good place as far as not feeling guilty about not posting or not playing games or whatever. Sometimes I pressure myself too much over my hobbies. Nonetheless, I have some grading to do for last week, and then I’ll make some picks for this weekend. I should note that I would have picked the Titans to beat the Jags anyway, so it would have just been a point against me regardless. Anyway, on with my scores:

Panthers 27, Buccs 24
Cowboys 30, Redskins 14 – Correct
Titans 20, Colts 17
Seahawks 23, Steelers 13 – Correct
Bills 24, Giants 20 – Correct
Patriots 50, Dolphins 3 – Correct
Texans 24, Jags 21 – Correct
Packers 28, Vikings 14 – Correct
Lions 20, Chargers 10 – Correct
49ers 20, Bengals 13 – Correct
Ravens 31, Cards 20 – Correct
Chiefs 35, Raiders 21 – Correct
Saints 33, Rams 24
Bears 24, Broncos 17 – Correct
Eagles 27, Falcons 23
Browns 14, Jets 13 – Correct

This week’s score: 12-4
Season score: 23-9

Not a bad week, I actually think I would have gotten at least one more of these correct were it not for the fact that I thought the Panthers would bounce back after a week 1 loss, and I don’t think the Rams would have done so well in their game against the Saints had Drew Brees not been injured. Whatever the case, I’ve been doing well to start off the season. Let’s make some picks for week 3:

Eagles 21, Lions 14
Patriots 35, Jets 13
Vikings 24, Raiders 10
Chiefs 24, Ravens 21
Falcons 27, Colts 20
Packers 28, Broncos 12
Cowboys 31, Dolphins 7
Bills 26, Bengals 9
Buccs 20, Giants 10
Panthers 23, Cards 17
49ers 24, Steelers 21
Seahawks 30, Saints 14
Texans 20, Chargers 17
Rams 21, Browns 20
Bears 17, Redskins 13

Clearly, having missed the pick on Thursday, I won’t count it in my points, unless someone makes a compelling argument as to why I should instead include in in the loss column. I’m fine either way, honestly. Just want to be held accountable. I think my team is looking good two weeks deep, and I think the Broncos should be another win. We haven’t started off this hot in a few years so it’s exciting. The defense is good for once. We still have an HOF Quarterback. I think we might actually go places this year, but I’m still not holding my breath until we’re well into December. Fingers crossed we make it that far without major incident.
